Drop away, Sleepy-head,
Dream safely in your bed,
The voices tucked in your mind,
The only friends you can find.

Sleepy-head, your reality fades,
Sleepy-head, your life is paid,
In your dreams you may fly,
But life has once more passed you by.

Retreat into your deepest brain,
Where the world can't fully stain,
Playing with the whispers there,
Sleepy-head, with the vacant stare.

Sleepy-head you won't talk,
Yet you crumble like chalk,
Eyes so raw they bleed red,
I can't help you, Sleepy-head.

Drop away, Sleepy-head,
Dream safely in your bed,
The voices tucked in your mind,
The only friends you can find.

Sleepy-head, you don't know why,
Sleepy-head, but please don't cry,
Dreaming to escape the hurt,
Yet it doesn't seem to work.

You dream all day now, Sleepy-head,
Hungry for something you can't be fed,
Sleepy-head, just try to forget,
All the goals that you once set.

Drop away, Sleepy-head,
Dream safely in your bed,
The voices tucked in your mind,
The only friends you can find.

Sleepy-head, should live for now,
But you took the final bow,
Though no-one really needed you,
That just wasn't your last cue.

You're dead now, Sleepy-head,
Dead, dead, dead, Sleepy-head,
But I know you always have been,
And invisible, never heard nor seen.

Drop away, Sleepy-head,
Dream safely in your bed,
The voices tucked in your mind,
The only friends you could find.

My little darling Sleepy-head,
I can't believe you're really dead,
Still a-dreaming in your bed,
My little darling Sleepy-head.
